The Country Calls


                - Sanjana Khanna


When you see olive green

Be filled with "josh"

'Coz this is the real Indian team

- Uncorrupted, "sarfarosh".


When you snuggle in bed

Spare a thought for the soul

Who fights an unseen enemy

In darkness and cold.


For us our soldiers die,

Leaving their families in sorrow.

And remember --

"They give up their today, for our tomorrow."


They cry out with grit --

"Kill 'em, cut 'em, but kneel not"

And with such burning passion

Isn't there something we feel not?


Do we still prefer

To join the unemployment queue?

While our country calls --

"Do you have it in you?"
